A Look Inside Diabetes
Diabetes can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, or profession. Musician Nick Jonas was diagnosed with the disease when he was just 13 years old. In this video, Jonas speaks with Larry King about living with diabetes.
Because blood sugar spikes and drops can result in health problems, Jonas must check his levels approximately a dozen times each day. He also sees his doctor at least four times a year. When on stage, Jonas also makes sure that he has juice close by at all times should he experience a sudden blood sugar drop. By taking care of his health, Jonas hopes to remain free of diabetes complications such as vision and extremity loss.
